Celebrate Life was born out of the Los Angeles scene in 1998. We were having trouble with police breaking up all our events for any reason they could find. The truth is, they fear our generation and it's power and they were trying to shut us down. But see, we ain't goin' out like that. We (Holly Luv Cat and I) decided to protest. We formed a movement called Right to Dance (RTD) in 1996 and coordinated events on the lawn of the Federal Building in Los Angeles. The events were a huge success so we had them the next year as well. Then, in 1998, we changed the meaning and the name to Celebrate Life. We didn't want it to only be about dancing, but about positive awareness of all kinds. Yoga, Raw Foods, taking care of your body and spirit etc.
We believe music is important, but it's the PEOPLE that it brings together that really matter. Music is just a tool for humans to gather. Dancing is where it begins and ends. It's the peek moment of many people working together towards one goal. It's a celebration. It's saying, "Look, we made it! We're here! All of us! We're alive! We've succeeded at becoming alive! Out of all those other sperm cells, WE were the ones strong enough to make it to the egg!" ...So get up and Celebrate Life!!
The music here widely ranges everywhere from hard hitting, trance-like, chemical beats...to liquid, electro-organic, beat-speak. Imagine if Pink Floyd and The Beatles had an electronic band with Weird Al on the drums, Einstein on the sequencer, and the Cheetos cat jivin on the bass in the back with shades. MP3s, CDs and Studio Photos are all here for you...
Sorry loyal fans...but I gotta go work on my track...
